Devotion to family, friends and her unwavering faith in the Lord were the corner stones of her life. Molly was a wonderful mother, loved and respected by all her children. She used laughter, love and food to gather her growing family for countless gatherings. Her children continue the tradition of home as a safe haven away from the worries of the world. She was a rock for her family and friends, accepting, generous soul, always available to listen to and comfort those in need. She had a great dry sense of humor as seen by the nicknames for everyone (starting with her children). Molly enjoyed all her friends through the years, and the time spent with them. She found comfort in the Lord throughout all her trials and ill health. She was a gracious and smiling lady, from her cancer diagnosis until her passage to meet her God.
